Propellantless stationkeeping for VLEO satellites

Lighter

The Calypso is much lighter than competing stationkeeping options, weighing a fraction of smallsat mass.

We are building the Calypso, an electrodynamic tether-based stationkeeping device that will enable Very Low Earth Orbit satellite missions.

More reliable

We’re engineering a reliable deployment mechanism so that, unlike previous tether missions, ours will get the job done.


Safer

We’re building smart software to control and predict our tether’s trajectory, continually improving mission safety.


Longer-lasting

Because it is propellantless, it will last much longer, resulting in a theoretical lifetime of up to a decade.
